Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) January 23, 2013
The global market for digital oil field in terms of revenue is expected to reach $33.3 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2012 to 2022. Western Europe dominated the global digital oil field market, accounting for 26.9% of the global digital oil field market revenue in 2011. North American region is expected to have the second highest market revenue by 2022. Middle East is expected to be the fastest growing market in the future, with a CAGR of 5.9% from 2012 to 2022, because of increasing demand for crude oil and the entry of E&P companies in the region. Asia-Pacific region is expected to have the highest growth next to the fastest growing market.
Digital oil field technology is a combination of IT and automation & instrumentation technologies, as an improvement of the existing technologies in the oil & gas industry. This integrated operations technology makes the analysis faster and easier with software involved in efficient data management, provides more realistic image of the reservoir and the availability of resources, helps to optimize process required for production, and renders much safer operations with the inclusion of remote surveillance and collaborated environments. Digital oil field technology includes segments of IT such as outsourcing, software services, and equipment based expenditure. Automation & instrumentation is another segment of digital oil field market, which includes key networking processes and communication technologies such as SCADA, PLC, smart well, safety systems, and wireless systems.
In the recent past, revival of older methodologies in the oil & gas sector became essential to increase and minimize the deficit in supply. The high average age of oil & gas industry professionals indicated more retirements in the near future, resulting in reduction of man power in the industry. This was met by automated production platforms, intelligent machinery and systems. The safety factors proved to be high after installing digital oil field technology based machines and systems. These are the reasons which are driving the market apart from the regulations by government bodies in some parts of the world.
